October 18, 2021 | Ontarians can now download their enhanced vaccine certificate with the official QR code and the free, made-in Ontario verification app, Verify Ontario.
Individuals can save the electronic version of their vaccine certificate with a QR code to their phone or print a paper copy. Organizations will accept electronic and paper versions. The current vaccine receipt without the QR code is valid and can continue to be accepted. The enhanced certificate with QR code is encouraged as it is easier to verify proof of vaccination.
Ontario organizations can download the free Verify Ontario app from both the Apple and Google app stores. The app will only scan and read official, government issued QR codes.
